Route Climbed: west side Date Climbed: July 24, 2004
Woke up with a hangover from drinking a bottle of wine by myself in the hotel restaurant (thought I ordered a glass but oh well). Thick clouds in the morning got me off route. Finally got up to the ridge from the southwest and promptly cornered myself on loose Class 4-5 stuff. Backtracked and found a notch over to the other side where it was easy Class 3 to the summit. Will submit a trip report when I get all the Icelandic peaks I climbed submitted.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
